Garrett Atkins, 3B, Colorado Rockies Sunday 5/6, 7:36 AM CT
The Angels have expressed interest in acquiring Garrett Atkins from the Rockies, according to the Denver Post. The Angels likely would have to deal someone like Ervin Santana to make it happen. However, the Rockies reportedly view Atkins as part of their core going forward, so it's unlikely a trade will be consumated. The Angels are desperate to replace the injured Garret Anderson and are looking around the league to add a bat to their lineup. Other names mentioned include Brad Hawpe and Jeff Baker.
Doubt COL parts with him but COL has good young hitters so you never know.
I just got him in a trade and I'll hate it that he leaves Coors. But if he hits behind my guy Vlad then yippee!
